Describing Protective Factors to Parents

SFG Parent Café

The SFG Parent Cafés are conversations among parents about what it takes to keep their families strong. Parent Cafés can take place in early childhoodwCafeBig centers or other friendly environments, and they’re a safe place to talk about the “hard stuff.” Trained parents lead the discussion as parent participants explore questions that really matter—about taking care of yourself, raising strong children, and building strong relationships with your children. The Parent Café model is based on the World Café model for engaging people in conversations that matter.

Parent Cafés offer:
1. An approach for engaging parents and families in conversations about themselves and their children
2. A method for building protective factors in families
3. An opportunity for developing parent leadership
